Product Description

The Men's Sitka Dakota Vest provides next-level weather protection, functioning either as an outer layer during warmer weather or an insulation layer in late-season. Made with Gore-Tex InfiniumTM with Windstopper® Technology, this Sitka vest provides enhanced protection from windchill. This insulated hunting vest features a water repellent finish to protect against light rain and prevent the inner material from becoming wet, keeping you dry in wet conditions. Two high handwarmer pockets offer quick hand warmth without the bulk of gloves, while two zip-close side pockets provide secure storage for essential hunting items. An integrated lanyard loop allows for easy and organized storage of your duck and goose calls, keeping them within reach for quick access. Perfect for a variety of weather either as a shell or inner layer, the Men's Sitka Dakota Vest offers high-performance weather-protection in a lightweight hunting vest so you can enjoy your day in the field.

  • High Handwarmer Pockets and Zip-Secure Hand Pockets: High hand-warmer pockets and traditional zippered hand pockets give you flexibility when worn with waders, bibs or pants.
  • Integrated Lanyard Loops: Lanyard loops keep your calls organized and are stashable in a low tubular pocket to keep them from swinging around on early morning slogs to the blind.

Great vest!!
Best vest out there. Great wind blocker lots of pockets. Wear with the gradient hoody in 20 degree weather and was warm. Love that it has hand warmer pockets as well.

I was a little hesitant to buy this vest because I struggled with selecting the correct size in vest. Very often I find the XL to be too big and the Large to be too small if I layer up too much. I’m 6’1”, 225 lbs and the XL fits me perfectly. I read a few reviews that said the vest was short for tall guys, but the fit is great to me. I wore this vest with a base layer for our season opener and it was enough to keep me warm without the added bulk of a full jacket. I especially like the high hand warmer pockets in addition to the zippered pockets. The only change I would suggest would be to replace the zippered pockets for deeper flap pockets like the ones on the Hudson jacket. I haven’t worn it under my Hudson Jacket yet, but I fully expect them to pair up nicely for late season hunting.

The second best article of clothing behind the Dakota jacket. This thing gives you core warmth. It is another article that goes hunting every day of duck season.

This is my most worn piece of gear. Early season I team it up with a Grinder half zip and as the season goes on and gets colder I team it up with a Gradient hoodie and have hunted down to the mid 20s comfortably. Throw the Delta wading jacket on too of that you are set!

Great vest but the large a little small for me-5’8” 180 lbs.

Sitka products are the best but unfortunately I had to return this one…

4 stars because of the sizing. I fall in between sizes on a lot of sitka stuff. I'm 5'11, 155 lbs, 32 waist, skinny build. My grinder hoody is a large and runs fairly big, but the medium fits like spandex. I've opted to buy large in most sitka outerwear. I scoured the internet looking for detailed information on the sizing of this vest, and ultimately went with a medium based of a review in the comments here. The vest fits perfectly EXCEPT for that it is skin tight around the bottom. I can't raise my arms without it riding up and then sitting higher when I lower them. I will be exchanging it for the large. I've never experienced that with any garment, and it's really odd considering how the rest of the piece fits, form fitting but still with ample room to layer. In terms of the design, materials, etc., it's top notch.

Love the vest as a whole, the warmth isn't that much but honestly I got it for the wind blocking ability, 5/5 all day long!
